Why We’re Here

We could not be more excited to continue our partnership with Kirsten Greenidge, and to be presenting her first new play in Boston since THE LUCK OF THE IRISH. Kirsten has been in residence with Company One since 2005, and in that time has won local and national awards for playwriting, and has been produced at Lincoln Center, LaJolla Playhouse, and the Huntington Theatre, among others.

SPLENDOR has been four years in the making, first under the guidance of C1’s Artistic Director Shawn LaCount, and then jointly with Dramaturg Ilana Brownstein. SPLENDOR was developed through the C1 Playground in the summer of 2011, and the 2012-13 XX PlayLab – a collaborative program with the Boston Center for the Arts, the mission of which is to develop and produce works by women. We are thrilled to see this long term collaboration between producer, playwright, director, and dramaturg culminate in this world premiere production.
